Empowered by God’s Word, King of Kings Lutheran School exists to assist parents and families by educating, equipping, and encouraging children for this life and eternity.
King of Kings Lutheran School had its beginnings in 1965, in the rooms now being used for the third and fourth grade, as well as the church and school office. There were about 45 students accommodated in that space.
As the Lord blessed our congregation, the need for an elementary school building became evident. In March of 1966, the ground was broken for a four-room school, the one we are using today. It was dedicated in September of that year in time for the second year of classes.
During that school year, three of the four classrooms were being used with about 100 students enrolled. A third teacher was added at this time. As enrollment continued to increase, another teacher, John Eaton, was added and became the principal.
In the next few years, a kindergarten program was added. The kindergarten used the space, which was used for the school when it first opened. Beatrice Galko served as our first kindergarten teacher.
Later, a preschool program was added, with Cheryl Johnson serving as the first preschool teacher. In 1994, the preschool program was expanded to include 3-year olds, and it now allows potty-trained 2½-year old children to be enrolled.
God has blessed our congregation with many faithful called workers throughout the years. May God continue to bless the efforts of parents, pastors, and teachers at King of Kings Lutheran School, as we work together to make a Christian education possible for these children.
